Art and Design

Art Department

We live in a rapidly changing technological society that takes good design and the work of artists for granted. Society depends on artists and designers to enrich and enliven the lives of people whether as participants, as consumers, in art galleries or selecting well designed items for everyday use. In short, Art & Design helps learners become more aware of and be responsive to the world around them.

What can studying Art and Design achieve for young people?

The learning experiences in Art & Design present challenges to use imagination and develop specific knowledge and skills within a climate of creativity and innovation.

To achieve success, learners must demonstrate commitment and perseverance in developing and presenting their ideas and expression. They will make their own art and design work using a variety of different media and incorporate different visual elements such as colour, line and tone. They will also evaluate and appreciate how art impacts on society by talking and writing about artists and designers work and sometimes about their own work in context. Learners will be challenged to work both independently and in cooperative learning teams where they will develop their team-building skills.
